Giants Punter Creates HELL for Man w/ Same Name

12/20/2010 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Moments after NY Giants punter Matt Dodge stupidly kicked away the game yesterday ... tons of angry fans went to Twitter hoping to unload on Dodge's account -- but they found the WRONG Matt Dodge.

In case you missed the game -- Dodge was supposed to punt the ball away from Philadelphia Eagles star DeSean Jackson in the final seconds of a tied up game ... but he didn't ... and Jackson scored.

After the game, another guy named Matt Dodge was blasted with Twitter hate mail -- people calling him a "chode blaster" and advising him to go into the witness protection program.

Matt Dodge (not the punter) responded, "Whoa, just got hella twitter spammed thanks to that gawtdamn NY Giants punter, also named matt dodge. Think he'll buy my account?"

As for the other Matt Dodge (punter) -- there's speculation the Giants will cut his ass this week.

I can't believe people get so up in arms about sports. A year from now is this game really going to matter in anyone's life? Except for the player, of course.

The Giants blew the game long before Matt Dodge "foiled" the out of bounds punt! They once again, became relaxed thinking the party was over...I agree with the previous commenters, they still have a playoff opportunity...Stop the crying, play ball like the fans want you to...just hope they will utilize some DEFENSE, they haven't found it yet.

Feel sorry for the guy for how he's been thrown under the bus.
Sure he didn't kick it out of bounds, but Jasckson dropped the ball..there is no way he should have gotten time to recover his fumble and start his way back up the field. every Giant on that field caused the loss...not just the punter

The Giants punter blew a 31-10 lead with just over 8 minutes left? No, and the Giants fans are exploding on just one guy? Idiots.

Stay classy New York. You wanna make this poor guy the fall guy, but the people you should really be pissed at is the damn Giants defense. The score in the final few minutes was like 31-7. The damn defense let the Eagles come back on them. If the defense had done their job, they wouldn't have lost the game. It kinda makes me angry that this poor guy is taking the full blame for something that should be shared by the ENTIRE DEFENSE.

The giants had lost that game long before that matt dude kicked the ball. They got lazy and forgot that they were playing against michael vick. The punter never should have been in that position in the first place. Vick ran for 103 yards!!!! Whos fault is that?!!! Im not even a giant or an eagle fan......
